On Wednesday 23 November, our Fifth Year students had an inspirational talk delivered by Lisa Jacob. She is a former International hockey player (one hundred and thirty nine caps for Ireland) and Rugby 7’s player.  She also is a mental health advocate and an ambassador for 20×20; an initiative launched this year aimed at increasing female participation in sport by 20% by 2020.

She spoke about how she overcame struggles in her sporting career and the benefits that sport has for mental wellbeing imparting some super suggestions and advice for our students.
